CDC Office and Location: A training opportunity is currently available with the Division of Nutrition, Physical Activity, and Obesity (DNPAO) within the National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP) at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Atlanta, Georgia.
The CDC is one of the major operation components of the Department of Health and Human Services. CDC works to protect America from health, safety and security threats, both foreign and in the U.S. Whether diseases start at home or abroad, are chronic or acute, curable or preventable, human error or deliberate attack, CDC fights disease and supports communities and citizens to do the same.
Research Project: This ORISE fellow training opportunity will focus on building public health skills related to implementation science and the use of evidence-based interventions to improve nutrition and physical activity behaviors. Intervention foci include the early care and education setting (also known as child care) and other key clinical and community settings to support healthy child growth and chronic disease prevention. The ORISE participant will build skill in developing generalizable knowledge from local knowledge by encouraging the use of common frameworks and harmonized constructs and measures, synthesizing information across sites, and applying lessons to a variety of sectors and settings.
Learning Objectives: Under the guidance of a mentor, this Early Care and Education (ECE) ORISE fellow training opportunity includes:
Mentor(s): The mentor for this opportunity is Carrie Dooyema (email@example.com). If you have questions about the nature of the research please contact the mentor.
Anticipated Appointment Start Date: Early 2024. Start date is flexible and will depend on a variety of factors.
Appointment Length: The appointment will initially be for one year, but may be renewed upon recommendation of CDC and is contingent on the availability of funds.
Level of Participation: The appointment is full-time.
Participant Stipend: The participant will receive a monthly stipend commensurate with educational level and experience.
Citizenship Requirements: This opportunity is available to U.S. citizens, Lawful Permanent Residents (LPR), and foreign nationals. Non-U.S. citizen applicants should refer to the Guidelines for Non-U.S. Citizens Details page of the program website for information about the valid immigration statuses that are acceptable for program participation.
ORISE Information: This program, administered by ORAU through its contract with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to manage the Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE), was established through an interagency agreement between DOE and CDC. Participants do not become employees of CDC, DOE or the program administrator, and there are no employment-related benefits. Proof of health insurance is required for participation in this program. Health insurance can be obtained through ORISE.
The successful applicant(s) will be required to comply with Environmental, Safety and Health (ES&H) requirements of the hosting facility, including but not limited to, COVID-19 requirements (e.g. facial covering, physical distancing, testing, vaccination).

The qualified candidate should have received a master's or doctoral (preferred) degree in one of the relevant fields. Degree must have been received within five years of the appointment start date.
Candidates with a master’s degree and significant coursework or experience with implementation science and/or implementation research are encouraged to apply.
I certify that I have not previously been employed by CDC or by a contractor working directly for CDC. I understand that CDC does not permit individuals with a prior employment relationship with CDC or its contractors to participate as trainees in the ORISE program. (Exceptions may be granted for individuals who, since the previous CDC employment, have obtained a new STEM degree which necessitates training in a new field.)
